Unicorn Birthday Cake

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Character cakes are always a hit at a child’s birthday party. If you’re the parent of a little one then you already know this. This Unicorn Birthday Cake was inspired by Goldie, the pet unicorn from Goldilicious,  the follow-up to New York Times bestselling Pinkalicious and Purplicious picture books by award winning illustrator and author Victoria Kann. The books were inspired by Victoria’s real life daughters – two girls with vibrant imaginations who love cupcakes, dress up, playing princess, and all things pink.

The body of the unicorn was carved out of Vanilla Pound Cake and layered with Vanilla Buttercream. The head was modelled out of rice crispy treats and the hair and were piped with royal icing. The rest of the cake was draped with fondant and highlighted with pink pearl dust to give detail. Happy Birthday Sophie!
